SUMMIT COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL SHELTER HOSTS BOW WOW FILM FESTIVAL

SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – Summit County Animal Control and Shelter is excited to host the Bow Wow Film Festival. The Bow Wow Film Festival is a Boulder, CO based traveling film fest that celebrates, educates and inspires all things dog, through the art of short film. The Bow Wow collaborates with animal welfare organizations, such as pet food pantries, humane societies and service dog organizations and travels the country to raise money and awareness for hosting organizations. 100% of ticket sales benefit animal welfare organizations. In the first two years of touring, Bow Wow has co-hosted over 70 shows and raised over $125K for our animal welfare groups!

Bow Wow is an adventuresome, heartwarming and delightful, family friendly show that has played to enthusiastic audiences in cities to include Austin, TX, Minneapolis, MN, Denver, CO & San Francisco, CA.

Bow Wow films are crafted by filmmakers who are amazing storytellers, animators and artists, as seen in 90 wonderful minutes of award winning, funny, and moving shorts. Their films will engage you as well as touch your heart. For 2017-18, they have the return of the enchanting Ask Frank - Advice for Dogs, the adventures of a dog named Elvis and a beautifully filmed piece about a man and an Akita to name a few.

The winning video from our local contest entitled “Ruff day at the Office” which was created by the staff of the Breckenridge Tourism Board will also be featured. A video about Avalanche Cats created by Copper Mountain Ski Patrol is sure to bring a smile to the cat lovers.  

The Breckenridge show will be held at the Eileen & Paul Finkel Auditorium at Colorado Mountain College on Thursday, May 10, 2018. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:00 p.m. The event runs approximately two hours. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under. At the door tickets will be $12 for adults and $7 for children. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Summit County Animal Shelter at 58 Nancy's Place in Frisco or online at www.bowwowfilmfest.com. All proceeds from the ticket sales will support the Summit County Animal Shelter’s medical fund. Light snacks and soft drinks will be available.
